Admissions in Australian Universities:

If you are an international student then don’t worry! Students also have the alternative to start their course in university in the semester I (March-June) or the semester II (July-October). In order to start the course in semester I, it is important that your enrolment application reaches the university in December. Domestic students are given a priority and hence you must submit your admission application on time before the intake if full.

If you want to secure your admission in Second semester then the last date to apply comes in May. Well according to a few student co-ordinators, taking admission this late is not a wise decision at all. To complete the Admission requirements in Australian University you need to pay the One Time Registration Fees and also have to submit/upload the second language test results of English. The Second Language Test may include Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or International English Language Test System (IELTS) or Pearson Test of English (PTE).

If you receive your result a bit late, then don’t waste your time just send the result to university at the earliest. There are many Education Consultants and Agencies who represent the Australian Universities. So before visiting any consultant do your own research and then choose which agency is providing you best options.

The student visa (subclass 500) will be valid till the completion of under graduation course. While applying for the Student Visa, you need to attach the copy of COE. Furthermore, you also need to show the proofs regarding funds that will be used in your studies.
